    Hi

    I have this 'Acer Predator XB271HU Abmiprz 27' and cant recommend it enough. Colours are fantastic, brightness is so bright it has to be turned down to about 60%. The controls are pretty good once you get used to what each button does and 144hz is great, also it can be overclocked to 165hz if that's your thing.

    Overall PQ is brilliant especially @ 1440p, Input lag is not noticeable (4ms). The stand is really really solid and there is no screen shake when thrashing your keyboard on the same desk.

    Let us know what your opt for, good luck :thumbsup:

    I've been using the Asus PG279Q for the last 14 months. I think it's the same panel/specs as the Acer. It just depends on which design of the stand/frame you like better.
